** Frequently happened with the villains and was most often prompted by outrage that Goku or whoever was fighting them actually managed to not only hit them, but do some damage (in Frieza's case it made sense, as by the current scale he was so stupidly powerful that he hadn't had a decent fight in decades. When a 20-x-Kaioken Kamehameha actually burns his hand, he flips out.). Vegeta tried to ''destroy the Earth'' because Goku made him bleed a little.

** During the fight with Fusion Zamasu, Vegeta and Trunks managed to reflect the ball in his face which does little to no harm as a result of his CompleteImmortality. Fusion Zamasu however, immediately goes apeshit and decides to murder Goku, Vegeta and Trunks just because things didn't get his own way.

** From a not-very-nice character, Guts' adoptive father, Gambino, got extremely pissed off when little Guts managed to cut him across the cheek while he was training him as a child. Gambino reacted by ''slashing Guts across the bridge of his nose'' incapacitating the kid for quite awhile. [[ScarsAreForever The resulting scar never healed.]]

* ''LightNovel/SwordArtOnline'': Sugou/Oberon has a FreakOut and starts whining about the pain after Kirito gives him a little cut on the cheek; Kirito even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades it]], pointing out that it's [[spoiler: ''nothing'' compared to what Sugou [[AttemptedRape did to Asuna]]]]. Kirito proceeds to ''really'' give Sugou some wounds to cry about... by [[AnArmAndALeg slicing off his hand]], [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe cutting him clean in half]], and finally [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impaling him]] [[EyeScream through the eye]].

** During the fight with King Piccolo, Piccolo is holding Goku by the collar, mocking him. Goku bits his thumb, causing Piccolo to scream in pain and suck his thumb afterwards. It's the only injure he sustained in that fight.

to:

** A particularly extreme example occurs when Mercenary Tao is enraged because Goku's Kamehameha [[ClothingDamage shredded his clothing]], even though he is completely unhurt. In response to this, he dispenses with his usual SelfImposedChallenge style of fighting and uses his most precise and powerful killing technique, which Goku only survives by dumb luck.

** Besides which, housecats ''do'' ([[Film/MeetTheParents generally]]) use a litter box, so consider what's likely been on their claws sometime recently. Also {{subverted}} when it comes to feline ''bites'', as their teeth are designed to pierce (rather than crush, like canines), and the bacteria in their mouths is second only to [[ManBitesMan other humans]] when it comes to infection rates.

So while the initial bite of a housecat tends to be far less damaging than one from a dog, it can also be far more harmful if left untreated.

* In GordonKorman's ''The Zucchini Warriors'', one of the MacdonaldHall football players (who has ironically given himself the nickname The Beast) gets a bruised elbow. He then insists that it's actually a compound fracture and walks around with his arm in a sling for nine weeks.

* [[BigBad Sharptooth]] from ''WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime'' gets ''very'' pissed off (well, [[UpToEleven even moreso]] [[HairTriggerTemper than]] [[AxCrazy usual]], that is) when Cera headbutts him while he is unconscious, even though he was previously shown to be able to headbutt ''stone'' into dust himself. Heck, he's not even ''injured'' so to speak, but it still sends him into murderous rage nonetheless.

* Deliberately invoked by Klinger in the ''Series/{{Mash}}'' episode "It Happened One Night." Klinger is accidentally shot by a nervous private who isn't used to night sentry duty. The resulting superficial graze wound prompts Hawkeye to say, "Could you at least bleed?" while examining him. Since Klinger is constantly trying to get discharged from the Army, he acts like he's just received a mortal wound and starts swooning all over the place and describing visions of his deceased relatives. Naturally, nobody buys it.

** Frank Burns applies for a Purple Heart twice, both times in response to minor injuries: After throwing out his back in "Sometimes You Hear the Bullet", and after his eye was injured by (egg) "shell fragments" in "The Kids". Both times, Hawkeye steals the medal and presents it to someone he considers more worthy of the honor.

* Yaga-Shura the fire giant in ''BaldursGate: Throne of Bhaal'' will run away for even more [[FlunkyBoss reinforcements]] (there's already a [[TheWarSequence small army fighting you]]) the first point of damage he receives. This perfectly demonstrates his lack of GenreBlindness and his understanding of the threat the [[OneManArmy player character]] poses, especially as the player succeeded has in removing his NighInvulnerability (of the instant regeneration kind).
